Botulinum toxin for expression wrinkles
Just as the hyaluronic acid filler is the treatment of choice for expression wrinkles in the lower half of the facial region, so Botox (or botulinum toxin) is for the upper regions of the face.
The arrangement of the muscles of the facial mimic (frontal muscles, corrugators, procerus and orbicularis of the eyes) are ideal for the application of this treatment.
The treatment is very simple and is performed without the patient needing any preparation prior to the session. The duration of the session is about 15-20 minutes and the effects begin to be visible from day 3-4 after the session.
The only complication to speak of with the treatment is the possible appearance of a micro-hematoma at any of the injection sites. The only care the patient would need in the immediate aftercare period, is to avoid rubbing the treated areas and avoid heat in the same areas for 5-6 days after treatment.
The effect of the treatment usually lasts between 6-8 months. After this, repeated yearly treatments will be necessary.
Botulinum toxin for axillary hyperhidrosis
Hyperhidrosis or hyperspiration in specific areas of the body (armpits, forehead, palms, etc.) is, for many people, a major social problem.
Hiperhidrosis occurs in people due to overactivity of the autonomic or vegetative nervous system, which is responsible for the control of involuntary functions and motorization of the internal organs of our body.
The region most commonly affected is the axillary region and its treatment is very simple, since it does not require any pre-session preparation.
The treatment consists of a superficial injection of botulinum toxin in the affected area and the technique is usually performed in about 30-40 minutes at the most.
The effects begin to be visible within 6-7 days of the treatment and are usually maintained over 6 to 9 months, radically improving the patient’s social problems.
It is the perfect solution for those who do not want to enter an operating room or have post-operative care to resolve this problem.
